The Rothschilds are a German/Jewish family most well-known for their stranglehold grip on world financial institutions. Because of their prominence, who they are and what they do has long been debated, with websites and videos popping up regularly to add to the confusion. Due to their sneakiness, little has been known.
I’m here to put an end to any confusion once and for all by offering the first comprehensive look at the Rothschild family history. Where the average report begins with Mayer Rothschild in the middle of the 1700s and hits a handful of highlights between then and now to illustrate the control this monetary monarchy has over the world, my objective will be to show that their insidiousness is much deeper than even the most aware individuals I know about, with a history that goes back far further than a few centuries.
In fact, the story of the Rothschild is even older than modern banking. Depending on who’s version of ancient history you choose to believe, the Rothschild story may even predate Judaism as a whole.
Want to know more? Join me as we take a stroll into prehistory and peel back the layers of deceit and manipulation that brought us to the troubled times we live in.
PART ONE: The First Rothschild and the True Origins of Ashkenazi Judaism
According to the internet, Ashkenazi Judaism boils down to “Jews in Europe before WW2.” This means that essentially anyone practicing Judaism as a religion that was born in the middle of Europe before WWII, or has an ancestor that fits said description, can call themselves Ashkenazi.
The internet is wrong, but so many sheeple believe everything they read on the internet that most of the world’s Jewish population is now Ashkenazi. The truth is much more revealing and reaches all the way back to pre-Biblical times, to the cities of Ur and Nineveh.
Ashkenaz was Noah’s great-grandson, and he was running around when Babylon was still a thing. He came from the era’s most influential family, a silver spoon that would feed him and all of his descendents for all of eternity.
One of his cousins was a guy named Nimrod. He was powerful enough to have you killed in any delicious way he desired for even thinking of laughing at his name. He was so powerful that some people say he founded everything from Sumeria to Assyria. The truth is that he was the ruler of the city of Ur, as well as the founder of a few smaller satellite cities.
A lot of the other cousins and uncles were founding or ruling cities as well, including his uncle Ashur, who had recently founded Nineveh. Cities were popping up everywhere, so instead of competing, Ashkenaz decided to try his hand as something different.
History, specifically Herodotus, wants us to believe that the earliest coins were issued by Croesus of Lydia. That’s close, but in actuality the first coins, called “shekels,” were produced by another of Ashkenaz’s uncles – Lud, the founder of Lydia, and Croesus’s predecessor.
It was while Lud was explaining his new innovation to his nephew that Ashkenaz had history’s most important epiphany. Lud’s new money was made from precious metals – silver and gold. That was great for people that ruled and founded cities, but what about everyone else? What could Bobby-Jo from down the block offer anyone for even a rabbit turd of gold?
He traveled back to Ur, where he convinced Nimrod to let him create the world’s first ever commodities market. With access to the royal treasury, he was able to trade gold and silver to wealthy merchants for bulk goods. He would then break down those goods and exchange them in small amounts for more common non-perishables like salt, obsidian, bronze, copper and cotton.
Although by today’s standards that seems like a no-brainer, remember that this was a time when money was still a novelty the crazy uncle down the road was testing and trade value of items was legislated and measured in grain. His was a legal secondary market, where he set the prices.
He was sharp. Before long that translated into being both rich and influential. His traders were handling exponentially more goods than the royal accountants and Nimrod’s coffers became less full because of it.
Before long, Ashkenaz was forced to close his secondary market. he attempted to protest, resulting in Nimrod banishing him. Undeterred, he moved to Nineveh, where Ashur welcomed him with open arms.
Ashur was a little bitter at Nimrod, because Nimrod was ruling the city Ashur’s brother, Arpachshad, had founded before Nimrod decided to seize control and banish him. Arpachshad’s banishment would be the first in a long line of forced expulsions considering he’s a direct ancestor of David. Ashkenaz’s banishment into the arms of Arpachshad’s brothers would allow him to form a bond with Shem’s children that continues until today.
Ashkenaz set up shop in Nineveh, but instead of creating a secondary market, Ashur gave him control of the treasury and allowed him to draw his salary as a percentage.
He quickly became the second-richest and second-most-powerful man in the second-most-powerful city in the world. Satisfied that being the second-richest person in the city was a lot like being the first-richest person without all the responsibility and attention, he set his sights on making Nineveh the first-most-powrful city on the planet.
His master plan would take decades. He spent a good deal of his down time being a baby factory, fathering seven sons. He trained them all in accounting and sent them to seven different cities to reproduce his success. This would be the blueprint that Mayer Rothschild would use to found his own empire millennia later.
Once his sons were settled, he made his move. Jeremiah 51:27 reads in part: “call together against her the Kingdoms of Ararat, Minni and Ashkenaz.” While Ararat and Minni reference actual historical states, there is no other mainstream reference to a Kingdom of Ashkenaz.
That’s because the Kingdom of Ashkenaz was the Kingdom of Money. More specifically, it was the Kingdom of Luxury Goods because the whole currency thing was still having the kinks worked out in Lydia. Regardless, Ashkenaz used his wealth and the wealth of his sons to finance the attack on Ur by Ararat and Minni.
They would also hire the first assassins, and although the attack would ultimately fail, the killers hired by Ashkenaz were a shining success. Using the knowledge acquired through managing city funds, he had all the most important accountants murdered, resulting in financial ruin.
Ur retaliated, guaranteeing Ararat and Minni would disappear into the history books forever, but the damage was done, leaving Nineveh the most powerful city on the planet.
This meant Nimrod couldn’t retaliate against Ashkenaz, who was safe under Ashur’s protection. He could, and did, retaliate against Ashkenaz’s sons, killing all but two, who fled their own cities in time to save themselves. Once went north of Nineveh and the other east.
Ashkenaz would end up leaving Nineveh in his later years, disappearing completely despite his considerable wealth. Before he disappeared, he gave very specific instructions to his two sons on how to manage the family, instructions that would go on to influence all of civilization and divide the very house it was meant to protect.
I’ll talk about that in PART TWO: Red & Black – A House Divided (link coming soon), where the origin of the red shield will be revealed an the role the Rothschild family had in the birth of banking is explored.
Until then, keep your eyes open and your head up.
